Military Intelligence: Syria Continuing to Arm Hizbullah

[Ha'aretz] Shahar Ilan - The head of the Military Intelligence research division, Brig.-Gen. Yossi Baidatz, told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday that Syria was continuing to transfer significant amounts of weapons to Hizbullah. Baidatz said that, in his view, Syria was not really considering changing its attitude toward Iran, despite diplomatic contacts with Israel. He said Hizbullah was continuing to enhance its rocket capability both north and south of the Litani River. "The rockets are coming in from Syria and Iran," he said. He also said that PA leader Mahmoud Abbas will likely not run for reelection in January 2009.
